Deeply outcurved rim, slender uptilted handles, disc foot with spreading outer profile. Inscribed on inside, underside and exterior. The graffiti on this and other lekanai from the same deposit, here 1794, 1795, 1796, shown in the earlier publications, will be republished by Miss Lang, with facsimile drawings.

A faithful representation of just such a lekane appears in the sacrifice scene on the cup in Oxford 1911. 617: ARV 559, 152, late work of the Pan painter. In outward appearance the disc foot is indistinguishable from the ring foot; for the types common in this deposit see 1795-1797, Fig. 21. These are substantial pots; Miss Lang, loc. cit., gives the weight of 1792 as 850 drachmas (3.76 kg., or a little over 8 pounds).
